look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a medium to dark orange gold color that's hazy, no head retention and a super thin lacing ring.

S - Spicy with a mild touch of garlic, fruit rinds and resiny, traces of pine. The caramel malt is very, very light and buried. Aroma favors the hops.

T - Lots of earthy pine and tropical fruit resins of grapefruit and oranges with a spicy, rindy, almost garlic-like character. Caramel malt is biscuity and lays pretty low in the background in this hop forward IPA. Hop resins are on the spicy sweet side while the lingering bitterness favors the piney grapefruit side.

M - Medium body, a little sticky, and a very nice long, lingering spicy bitterness of oranges, grapefruit, and pine. Leaves an enjoyable and pleasing coating of spicy hops long after the sip.

O - This beer is FAR more deserving than the current overall score of "80". It's hop forward and in my opinion, very well brewed. If I could buy this locally, this would definitely be a staple IPA in my beer fridge.

The beer pours a clear dark yellow color with a white head. The aroma is a mix of piney and grassy hops. The flavor is pine hops as well as some citrus and some grainy notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not a bad IPA, but nothing really stands out that makes me want to try it again.

Gold to copper in color with an inch of off white on top. The aroma is of onions and dankiness. I'm tasting vegetal hops, pine and light malt. The mouth is lightly sticky and chewy.

Light copper with the right amount of caramel malt. This is a malt forward IPA but with the dank that a great American IPA should have. Nice nose with hops other than Cascade and Citra like everyone else is using these days. I dig it. Perfect ABV for an American IPA.

Bottled.
Nice mouth feel...poured with 1" of head.. End taste a bit caramel overtones. Not very hoppy.

Absolutely delicious ipa! Smell immediately gets you excited to drink the beer. Once it hits the palate, it has a hoppy yet smooth taste with creaminess. Delicious, deliciius , delicious! Fortunately, I live just down the road from Austin so I will have access to this beer. If you truly enjoy hoppy, creamy, amazing ipa's this is the beer to go with. Awesome!!!
